Re: 23’ Belle Isle “hooking”

Rich,

Sorry I know I have slightly high jacked the post but I think it is still relevant that we are talking about Belle Isle and hooking.

Re: Virginia Barrel

When I done mine I cut both sides of the frame away so it was flush with the cutout if the keel and shapes to frame.

Re: 23’ Belle Isle “hooking”

I would also like to see rudder and what degree strut is being used, prop size etc. I agree I wouldn’t want to be pushing these things at high speed in unsavoury conditions. Last pass was 40mph at 4000 rpm, I am running a 4 blade 13x13 Going to pop my 3 blade 13 x13 back on once it is repaired and c...
